Two homeless people are thought to have frozen to death over the weekend, it has been reported.
According to sources, the Hungarian police force found two bodies in Budapest but have not yet confirmed the exact cause of their deaths.
Meanwhile, Hungary’s homeless services system has passed the “pressure test” of extreme weather conditions, state secretary Károly Czibere has said.
According to MTI, Czibere noted that homeless shelters have been enlarged, and said that there was still “an abundance” of beds to accommodate more people. In the provinces most shelters are full, he said, but added that new arrivals would “not be rejected”.
